Tips and Notes-
  • To avoid curdling of yogurt in the curry-use chilled yogurt and beat it well ,remove the pan from the flame while adding the curd,keep stirring the curry while cooking for approx 2-3 minutes or till it start boiling after adding the curd.
  • You may also add 1 tsp gram flour/besan or refined flour/maida in the yogurt to avoid curdling.
  • Add a piece of mango pickle at step -9  for a tangy achari flavour.
  • You can make the curry with either fresh or slightly sour curd,depending on your choice and can add 1/2 to 1 tsp of  lemon juice if using fresh yogurt.
  • Boiled and refrigerated cold potatoes give best result. I always boil the potatoes and keep refrigerated for some time before making dahi waley aloo.
